Witness Gujarat's Heritage at Shreyas Folk Museum

Museums in Ahmedabad are something known yet unexplored. Many of you know they exist but it doesn’t look that they reserve the apt value that it deserves. New technology and fast life is killing the old traditions. Somewhere in the heart of the city, this museum is established.  

SHREYAS FOLK MUSEUM. Many of you know where it is and what it showcases. For those who don’t know, this museum takes you back in time to the roots of Gujarat. It takes you to a world where everything was different and manually handled. In many ways this museum is a tribute to the indefatigable spirit of Gujarati women who have added a remarkable value to the Gujarati heritage with their soulful crafts and unique imagination.

Have you visited Kutch? Have you met the local people? If not, then this place is ideal for you. Displayed here the art forms range from varied communities such as the Kathi, Rabari, Ahir, Mer, Charan, Bharvad, Kanbi, Koli, Bhansali, Rajput, Brahmin, Vania, Meghaval, Khoja Bohra, Meman, Miana and several others. The Museum houses old traditional Costumes, Jewellery, Footwear, Carts and many more things.  Ever wondered how their kitchen looks like? This museum has an entire set up of a traditional kitchen. It’s definitely a delight to see. This museum may remind you of the movie “Ramleela.“
